Meet at the North end of Kew Bridge (nearest postcode W4 3NQ) from 13:15, riding off at 13:30. This ride will join up with the Clapham Junction ride before heading into Central London. It is quite a long and relatively fast ride.
The Kew Bridge start tends to attract enthusiastic cyclists as it moves through leafy West London at a brisk (but not breakneck) pace, crossing the meandering Thames several times before merging with riders from the Clapham Junction start. The ride starts from the southbound roadside at the north end of the bridge. There is no segregated space for body painting, so consider painting yourself at home.
Participation is free and there is no need to register, but please donate! The ride is made possible by volunteer helpers and generous donations from our participants. No one is paid for running WNBR London, but we do have some significant expenses like radio comms hire, road closure fees, insurance, website, printing, marshals’ ID, etc. It’s got to be worth a fiver or more!
The World Naked Bike Ride is a global protest movement with rides in cities around the world, raising awareness of issues such as safety of cyclists on the road, reducing oil dependence and saving the planet. Let’s make the planet great again!
WNBR’s themes are to:
- protest against the global dependency on oil
- curb car culture
- obtain real rights for cyclists
- demonstrate the vulnerability of cyclists on city streets
- celebrate body freedom
As well as promoting healthy life choices it can also be the best fun you can ever have on two wheels. The London ride has the excitement of a carnival, with big crowds to cheer it on. It is a “naked bike ride” but you can be “as bare as you dare” – body painting and fancy dress are welcome. It is fun, legal and all in a worthy cause.
There are multiple start points, so please choose the one you like the most. The exact routes will be decided near to the date.
